7 Simple Ways to Work More Efficiently Every Day ...


Sometimes, work can get stressful, simply because of the amount that we have to get through, but there are some simple ways to work more efficiently every day that I would like to share.

Work can be difficult and I often find myself wishing that there were more hours in the day to do what I need to.

There are however, some simple ways we can ease the professional labour pains by making life easier for ourselves and here are my top ways to work more efficiently.

1. Organize

This goes without saying but one of the best ways to work more efficiently is actually to organize your files, papers and your desk.

The first thing I do when I get to work is organize the emails in my in-box according to which ones need to be dealt with urgently and which ones can wait a while.

They are 'flagged' appropriately so I can see which ones I need to do.

Feeling more organized and 'on top' of things, can make the work the stress subside as you feel more in control of the day and the week ahead.

2. Prioritize

This is another top tip which can help you to work more efficiently.

It can be tempting to do the nice tasks first and the ones that you enjoy.

However, that can often mean that the more pressing tasks, whatever they may be, are left to the last minute when they actually need your full attention and energy.

The best thing is to do those important tasks first.

That way, should you need any help with them, you won't have the last minute scramble and panic.

3. Delegation

If you're in a position to delegate, do it.

This can sometimes be difficult but if you're in a position of seniority, delegation is something that you should be doing as it's often part of the managerial post.

This will help you to get on with the more pressing tasks that you need to do.

If you're lucky enough to have someone to answer your phone, that can be a good way of helping you get on with the things that you need to, rather than constantly dealing with the queries which can encroach on your precious time.
